Welcome! I have been contemplating writing a blog for some time, and now, I’m finally doing it! What changed, you ask? It is largely due to having hired a marketing guru, who is helping me figure out how to do it. But even before I hired her, I knew that I had something I wanted to share.
I have been teaching and coaching presentation skills for more than 20 years, mostly in Europe. I am passionate about helping people become the best presenters they can be. I find it immensely gratifying to take someone from where they are as a presenter - may be fearful, maybe disorganized, maybe unconfident - and teaching them the skills they need to shine at the front of the room. I find this work transformative. There is no more important life skill than being able to get your message out to the world clearly, concisely, and memorably.
Many of my former students write to me on LinkedIn and share that when they had to give a presentation to their boss, they pulled out the notes they took in my class and prepare using them.
My intention in writing this blog is to share content that you will keep and refer to, to provide you information that is relevant and useful. My goal in sharing this content with you is to give you the tools you need to transform your presentation skills and to become someone that people really listen to and remember.
So, without further ado, let’s get started!
